METHODS FOR TRACKING THE SUN
\ue000There are many types of trackers (Single axis, dual axis, Polar etc) but we
will focus our attention on the method of tracking.
\ue000There are three basic methods that Solar trackers use to keep track of the
sun. The goal is to get the \u201cmax possible power\u201d averaged over a day.
Employ photodiodes, LDRs and other light sensitive sensors
Take longitude/latitude and time/date and use pre-programmed data to set the
Sun angle at each point in time
Intelligent Sensor-less control
Use advanced techniques for detecting where the panels achieves Max Power
and learn to optimize the tracking process over time.
